On food

Radishes contain a substance also found in mustard, hence the intense taste. They make a great starter crop for vegetable patches and window boxes, indeed the Greek name “raphanos” means “quickly appearing” (or “easily reared”), which they most definitely are. As they grow very quickly, plant a few seeds every second week to have a constant supply of radishes.

Cookbook of the week

The Book of Tapas

Spanish food is quickly gaining its rightful reputation as one of the top cuisines of the world, to rival both that of France and Italy. The Book of Tapas presents over 250 easy-to-follow recipes that can be served with drinks in typical Spanish style, or combined to create a feast to share with friends.  … Click Here for more.

Food quote of the week

Recipe of the week:

Albondigas – Meatballs Tomato Sauce

These delicious little meatballs are perfect for a tapas party, or as a pre drink snack, and fairly easy to make. They are especially good the next day so make it in advance. This is a Wickedfood Cooking School interpretation, from one of our Spanish Cooking classes.. …Click Here for the recipe.

Wickedfood Cooking School runs cooking classes throughout the year at its purpose-built Johannesburg cooking studio. Cookery classes are run in the mornings and evenings 7 days a week (subject to a minimum of 12 people). The venue is also popular for corporate events and private functions – teambuilding cooking classes, birthdays, kitchen teas, and dinner parties with a difference.

Our cooking lessons are hands-on, where every person gets to participate in the preparation of the dishes. They are also a lot of fun where you not only learn new skills, but get to meet people with similar interests. For corporate groups and team building cooking classes these events are a novel way of creating staff interaction or entertaining clients.
